12. Creation of a Science Advisory Committee

— A nine-member board whose composition will make available the
advice and assistance of institutions of higher learning, private
industry and government.

13. Continuous progress evaluation of Comprehensive Pollution
Control Program

— Annual joint report by State Health Department and Department
of Water Resources to indicate status of standards implementa-
tion, county plans, interstate programs, etc.


With enactment of Comprehensive Water Pollution Control Act,
Maryland may launch an immediate and intensive campaign to con-
trol, eliminate and prevent pollution.

— By pre-financing — the prepaying of anticipated Federal grants
by the State government — Maryland's subdivisions may immedi-
ately construct necessary sewage lines and treatment facilities.

— This program — one year in the planning — covers virtually every
factor essential to water quality control.

— State funds loaned to local governments and amounts advanced
to prepay Federal grants will eventually be recovered.

— Thus, the program will cost the State considerably less than the
$129 million involved in the proposed bond issue.

feller to become a candidate for the Republican Presidential nomina-

In announcing the Maryland kickoff of the campaign which he
hopes will extend into neighboring states, Governor Agnew said:
